Plot[change | change source]

20,000 years ago, the Fairy race assisted humans in a battle against and sealed away the Bouma Tribe. Due to modern day pollution and man's destruction of nature, the power of Fairy magic has awakened, allowing the seal to be broken and thus the Tribe's escape. With the help Dr. Dazai, Seelon, the last of fairies, summons five high school seniors. As children, they were showered with the "flames of spirit" of the fallen fairies in a forest and can now hear Seelon's voice. Donning powered suits, the product of a collaboration between Seelon's magic and Dr. Dazai's science, the five become the Turborangers, juggling days of fighting with their regular school lives, in order to defeat the Bouma Tribe.
